Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me – Psalm 23:4.
Death is the state of being dead, it’s a loss of life, and it can be physical, emotional, mental, relational and financially. Each of us will experience death in any one of these categories at one time or another, but when death comes and however it comes, the Lord will always be there to walk us through it.No one wants to talk about death because the majority of the time, the first thing people think of is physical death. Death comes in many forms, and whenever or however it comes, we must realize Jesus is there to walk us through it. Physical death is something we can prepare for, we know as sure as we are born death will come someday. We prepare for death by getting our relationship right with the Father. We accept the salvation He has given us through His Son, Jesus. We allow Jesus to sanctify us to Himself, we accept the Word of God for what it is and we submit to it. Knowing when we depart from this life, we’re going to live with the Father because of our acceptance of Jesus and allowing Him to be Lord in every area of life and being. Death is something we all will have an appointment with, and we must have the Word of God in us and live by His Word.
Death comes in our health, we’re no longer capable of doing the things we once did. This doesn’t mean that we’ve sinned or God has forsaken us. Every sickness or disease will not be healed, and God doesn’t allow sickness or disease to come upon us to teach us a lesson, that’s not Scriptural all though some believe it. No one knows why God heals some and doesn’t heal others. We do know that if He doesn’t heal, it doesn’t mean He can’t, and we will worship and continue to have faith.
Death comes to marriages, many have ended in divorce court, but if we allow the Lord to come in, He can heal a broken marriage. He can make a marriage that is crooked, straight. God is for every marriage that is by the principals of God, one man to one woman. Satan comes to bring division, disunity, steal, kill and destroy. Just because death has come to the marriage, doesn’t mean God can’t speak life into your marriage. God can restore what the cankerworms and locust stole and took.
Death comes in our finances, some live from one paycheck to another. Many wonder how they will make it, that’s when God can work in the impossible. What’s impossible with us, is possible with God. Don’t weary or fret over finances, tell God about your dilemma, place your faith in Him, He will give you directions and open doors of opportunity to increase your finances. God can speak to any kind of type of death that has come into your life and bring life abundantly. Death is captive, and Jesus came to set the captive free in every area of our life. Jesus has conquered death in any form it comes in.
